1. Walt needs to get a real SS. we have the trade chips in the system to get it done.
2. Walt needs to admit his mistake and DFA Taveras. He has negative value. Then the centerfielder can be Dickerson (+- Hairston vs LHP)
CF Dickerson (+- Hairston)
SS a real major league player who can field & hit a little.
THAT is a pretty good lineup. If Walt could get a SS I would be excited over the team. We would still need a healthy Volquez or Bailey stepping up big time but the key acquisition MUST be a shortstop.
